Jobs, Internships and Contract Work

Good Jobs First is a national policy resource center that promotes corporate and government accountability in economic development. Since 1998, it has fought for reforms to increase transparency around the use of public money used in the name of economic development, and has revealed the numerous ways corporations – many of whom receive subsidies – violate civil and criminal regulations and laws. Our data and technical assistance play a vital role in efforts to create a fair and people-centered economy.  We work closely with a wide range of allies in support of policies and legislation to get us there.


Good Jobs First offers paid internships for the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Our interns do a variety of tasks, based on their experience and interests, and the current project needs of the organization. Past interns have assisted researching subsidies given to electric vehicle companies, fact-checked datasets, created videos and graphics, written blogs and analysis, and assisted with website development.
